Day 15: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project (NES)
Accomplices: Ted Smith
Details: The third Turtle game for NES. This one has Shredder and Krang floating Manhattan in the sky AND capturing April O’Neil. The Turtles are vacationing in Florida, so they ride their surfboards until they can board a submarine, hop a bridge and then hitch a ride on the Turtle Blimp to the island. Then, after they defeat Shredder they go after Krang in his spaceship by taking an outdoor elevator to a building top and then get sucked up in his tractor beam to the spaceship where they defeat Krang and then Shredder pours mutagen ooze on himself and becomes Super Shredder. They defeat him, and then somehow Krang’s spaceship explodes and Manhattan is lowered gently back to it’s original resting spot. Phew. I like simple plots like this.

Day 14: Magic Sword: Heroic Fantasy (Arcade)
Accomplices: Carrie Gottuso
Details: I had never played or even heard of this game until now. You make your way up 50 floors of a castle to fight the bad guy and take away his evil orb. Only we (apparently) decided to keep the evil orb, and became corrupt ourselves. It was an interesting twist to the ending, to say the least!

Day 6: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game (Arcade)
Accomplices: Carrie Gottuso
Details: Completed the original arcade game. This is the emulated version off of the Gamecube game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus. It’s identical to the arcade version, except that they replaced the original music with new (inferior) music, probably because of copyright issues.
